Our Team

Natalie Blinder – Founder & Executive Director

This war will leave deep scars on all of us. This is not only about Russia against Ukraine. It is about democracy versus dictatorship. As Ukrainians, we are not only protecting our land, we are protecting values, like human rights and the freedoms celebrated in the civilized world. This regime and this war want to take those values from us. This war has unified Ukrainians. It has united Europe and the world against tyranny. 

Bright Kids Charity right now is focused on helping the most vulnerable – children with disabilities, as well as children living in orphanages and those in children’s hospitals. Our NGO has received much support from individuals and companies around the world wanting to show solidarity with Ukrainians. We thank you for standing with Ukraine and choosing to help Ukrainian children through Bright Kids Charity. If you wish to support BKC on the corporate level, please contact me at n.blinder@brightkidscharity.com

Nataliia Romanshchak – Director

Nataliia Romanshchak joined Bright Kids as a volunteer in spring 2019. She helped develop the Future Professions project and has provided website translation.
Nataliia has been a committed volunteer, motivated by taking responsibility and committing to tasks.
When Bright Kids had a vacancy for the position of director in September 2019, she was the obvious candidate for the job.
Her valuable input and dedication to our charity mean that we are excited about developing new projects and furthering the work that Bright Kids does.
If you would like to Bright Kids as a volunteer, or if you want to donate clothing, shoes or other necessities, or if you want help with transportation, please contact Nataliia.


Our Volunteers: an essential team and the power of our foundation.

Our volunteers are generous and they are confident that what they do counts.

We have a volunteer team of more than 120 people since November 2018, and more people are signing up every day.

We are grateful that so many people want to support the work of Bright Kids Charity, making us able to reach more children and offer excellent services.

Our volunteers are the people who work hard to turn our ideas into a reality, and without their dedication and compassion, many children would face a far-less inspiring future.

We would like to introduce you to some of our dedicated volunteer team.

Irina Lobova

Hello! My name is Irina, I work as an accountant. In 2014 I started visiting old people’s houses to help those who don’t have anybody to support them.
Charitable (voluntary) activities teach us to see the world and things happening around us differently, teach us to appreciate what we have and value every day, and, most importantly, to be happy with little things. We should always remember that there are those among us who need help and care, and not to turn your back on someone.
I think that by participating in social projects, I make this world around us a bit better, and also realize that by doing good, you become a better person yourself. That is why I have joined the Bright Kids team!

Lidiia Buliak

In August 2020, Lidiia Buliak joined our team as our Project Coordinator. She is developing our projects, connecting with like-minded people and organizations, sharing our success stories about the children we support and their mothers, as well as spreading the word about how people can get involved with Bright Kids. If you’d like to share a story about your life that could help to inspire others, please contact Lidiia at info@brightkidscharity.com

Iryna Motoryna

Hi there! My name is Iryna Motoryna. I started working in the charity sector in 2014, combining it with my main job. I have a degree in Finance, and since 2018, I have been working in the charity sector full time, focusing my efforts on helping families who are raising children with disabilities. I have joined the Bright Kids Charity team because I share the charity’s objectives and I want to be helpful, especially at this difficult time for Ukraine.

Reach out to Bright Kids Charity and join our volunteers, who are making it count.
